Improvements to Web of Science

Changes to functionality of Master Journal List.

Web of Science has launched an enhanced Master Journal List offering improved functionality and a better user experience. The online list allows  researchers to explore which journals are included in the Web of Science, and helps them identify suitable publishing destinations for their research. More than 320,000 researchers, librarians and editors visit the freely-available online list each month.

The improvements include:

  • New Journal Profile Pages: independent and impartial data and metrics for more than 21,000 journals across thousands of global publishers. The new Journal Profile pages include information on Web of Science coverage, journal metrics (including the most recent Journal Impact Factor), average time from submission to publication (where available), open access information, and peer review information.
  • Improved search: filter searches by collection, category, country, language, publication frequency, open access, and a range of journal metrics to quickly find the best results.
  • Integrated?Manuscript Matcher tool: to help researchers find?the best match for their manuscript, combining AI-powered technology with?Web of Science Core Collection-indexed data from more than 21,000 journals across thousands of global publishers.?

Users will also be able to limit a search on the Master Journal List to just journals included in the Web of Science Core Collection (journals that demonstrate high levels of editorial rigour and best practice, amongst the most influential in their field.)

Those with access to?Web of Science?and?Journal Citation Reports?can further explore literature published by the journal,?and more detailed metrics to determine if it is a good fit for their research.?
